RE: 1/2 ton towing a 5th wheel

Sure it will pull it. If you go a couple hundred miles on flat ground, go for it. The overall problem is it's a half ton. It may tow the load just fine, but the brakes won't last for long, the transmission isn't going to take a lot of miles, you don't have the truck weight to control the 5th in big wind gusts, etc, etc, etc. Bill

RE: Towing Capacity

Yes, should have gotten a Jeep to tow four down. Why complicate life? Bill

RE: Approximate fuel milage of these 2 motorhomes?l

Are you really going to put enough miles on it to worry about fuel usage? We've owned our DP with a Cat C7 for about nine years and only put 40,000 miles on it. That averages out to 4,444 miles per year. At the most, one of them may doe 1 mpg better than the other, so what? Take the diesel. Bill

RE: Air brake problem

Your car has air brakes? Or is it tied into the air brakes on the MH? The warning appears when the MH or the car is in gear? I have the M&G air system and it works fine. What is your MH? What is your braking system? Your profile is incomplete. Bill

RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

Go look at Nash or Arctic Fox trailers. They cost a little more and weigh a little more, but they're great trailers. Bill

RE: Considering move from class A to C

Go rent a Class C for a couple of days to try it out. Make sure you find one with two A/C units. One wont' do it in AZ. I have a 40' DP and I don't find any stress in driving it. I would think a Class C might give you more stress in the wind and big trucks because you don't have the weight to help control you. What do you find stressful about driving your DP? Bill

RE: fuel additives

If you drive in colder areas where they switch to #1 diesel in the winter, then you need it during the winter. To make #1 diesel so it flows better (doesn't turn to slush) in the winter, they take some of the wax out of it which in turn takes the lubricity out of it which in turns means you can loose your expensive injector pump. When running #1 fuel, use the additive. If all you run is #2 fuel living in a warmer climate, then don't worry about it. Bill

RE: Running the generator all night

I have an Onan 7500 and have let it run for 5 - 6 days straight when it was 105F out at the hydroplane races. Just check your oil and antifreeze levels once in a while. Bill

RE: How to avoid getting blown all over the road

Your truck may pull it, but in my opinion, you don't have enough truck as to weight and wheelbase length to control that long of a trailer. The tail is wagging the dog. I pull a 26' trailer with a 3/4 ton crew cab truck and eight ft bed. I have no wind problems at all. The tires are load range E. Bill

RE: Garmin RV GPS

Which model are you looking at? None of my 760s or 770s need my phone for traffic up dates. Bill

RE: Typical cost per mile to transport 5th Wheel

How far are you talking? 1,500 miles or across town? Bill

RE: solar

The cost of panels is almost nothing nowdays. To me it's more the time to buy and set things up, and because of that, you only want to do it once. Put 200 or 300 watts up there and be done with it. Your batteries will thank you. Bill

RE: RV furniture

Go to some of the higher-end RV shows and look at the furniture in them, measure it, sit on it, and try it out. That's how we found recliners we liked. Turned them over to find the tags with the mfg's information on it and call them. Bill

RE: Will a 100 watt solar panel be enough

Solar panels are cheap. If you're going to go to the effort of installing one, take an extra 30 minutes and install a second one. Solar power is like horse power and torque, you can never have too much of it. Bill

RE: Do you sanitize your black tank?

Sanitize the black tank??? What are you planning to do, haul drinking water in it? That's like asking people who are on their own septic tanks is they sanitize them. Bill

RE: Canada law on fuel tanks

I do remember 30 (?) years ago hearing that Canada wasn't trying to stop you from having your extra tank in the bed, but they wanted to tax the fuel. Their reasoning was you were driving on their roads but not paying any taxes for road maintenance. I must say on my last trip south in my truck, which had a load, but no trailer, I made it from Anchorage to Core de Lane Idaho without buying any fuel. Made it in 64 hours. Bill

RE: Canada law on fuel tanks

I've driven back and forth to Alaska a couple of times with a big red 110 gallon tank in the back of my truck they couldn't miss seeing and there's never been a question about it. Bill

RE: Memory Foam Mattress - Winter Storage

I live in Alaska and leave the memory foam in both my TT and MH all winter made up with the sheets and blankets. They've been that way for seven years. Bill

RE: Class A travel without interstates

Coming into Chicago and then going north were the worst roads I've seen as for potholes and traffic and I generally don't mind traffic. If I need to be somewhere, I take the main highways, if not I take the smaller roads. The only problem with the smaller roads if you have to pay more attention to the roads for sharp corners, driveways, farm equipment, etc, so at times you don't get to look at the scenery as much.
